1 Peter 2:4-6


Welcome to Cornerstone Christian Co-op (CCC)
About Us
In the Old Testament, humans built the temple out of stones to house the presence of God. Now that the Holy Spirit dwells within believers, God has united them as living stones into the spiritual house God is building. The Christian faith and the entire church are built on Jesus, the cornerstone. (Ps. 118.22; Matt. 21:33-46; Acts 4:10, 11; Eph. 2:20) So is this co-op.
At our core, we are about family discipleship. We believe in the biblical family model in which parents disciple and raise their children to love and follow Jesus. At CCC, families experience the love of Christ through classes, clubs, community, support, and resources all for the purpose of empowering and encouraging families as they disciple their kids.
We support the work of the local church and encourage families to be active and accountable in a body of believers. It is our intent and design that this group be neither a replacement for nor a hindrance to your own church commitment and involvement. For this reason, we stay single-minded in our function to serve as a tool for your homeschool.
Mission Statement
Cornerstone Christian Co-op exists to equip and connect homeschooling families, providing them with the tools and support they need to thrive on their homeschooling journey. We desire to see every homeschool parent flourishing and confident, every student growing and challenged.
As an organization, we are committed to empowering students, parents, and teachers to pursue education within a broad Christian framework. Our co-op is committed to bringing a variety of resources to families in order to achieve a common goal: educating and preparing a generation of children to take their place as a voice of Christ’s love and as leaders in their own communities and beyond.
Faith Statement
  • We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21)
  • We believe God has existed from all eternity in three Persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 3:16-17)
  • We believe Jesus was God and came in human flesh, being fully God and fully man, except without sin. (John 1:1-2, 14)
  • We believe all people are in violation of God’s righteous requirements and His holy character both by nature and act. (Romans 3:23, 5:12)
  • We believe human life is valued from the moment of conception to the time of death. All human life is precious in the sight of God. (Psalm 139:13-14; John 3:16)
  • We believe marriage and family are institutions ordained by the Lord God Himself from the very beginning of human history and these are sacred institutions. Marriage is between one man and one woman. Any other definition of marriage is contrary to the clear teachings of the Holy Bible and hence against the expressed will of God. (Genesis 2:20b-24)
  • We believe God created men and women as sexual beings. Sexuality is an integral and beautiful part of creation. We believe God forbids any attempt to alter one’s gender. The Bible clearly teaches that any sexual act outside of marriage whether in thought, word, or deed is sin. (Genesis 1:27- 28; Matthew 5:27-28; I Corinthians 6:9-10,18; I Thessalonians 4:3-8)
  • We believe that the central purpose of the coming of Jesus Christ was to pay the penalty for man’s sin through His substitutionary death on the cross, the successful accomplishment of which was attested to by His subsequent bodily resurrection. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Acts 1:3)
  • We believe the Holy Spirit indwells the Christian enabling the individual to live a godly life; (1 Corinthians 6:19; Romans 8:9,13; Galatians 5:16)
  • We believe salvation is offered as a gift, free to the sinner. This gift must be responded to in individual faith, not trusting in any personal works whatsoever, but in the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ alone. (Acts 13:38-39; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9)
Financial Obligation Statement
CCC membership is a financial obligation. Payment in full is due when you join. Membership, class, material, and lab fees are non-refundable. The co-op’s budget is based on these fees so classes cannot be dropped or refunded after registration.

Membership Engagement Statement
We will be counting on your cheerful engagement with our co-op community!
  • Barring a family emergency or illness, parent volunteers and students are responsible for their consistent co-op attendance. Because we are a true co-op, parent volunteers are required to serve 4 full days throughout the year during class times from 8:30-2:30, as well as at 2 special events throughout the year, such as our end-of-semester programs. Volunteer work includes but is not limited to assisting teachers with set-up and take-down, cleaning duties, and helping where needed. Please notify the leadership team of you or your student(s) absence.
  • There is a limited option for a volunteer opt-out fee for a single payment of $250. An opt-out application must be submitted to the board. This payment will be due at class registration.
  • Be aware that punctuality is vital to the success of the co-op. Please be considerate to not disrupt classes, students, and teachers with constant tardiness.
  • Unenrolled siblings may not attend classes or play in empty rooms. Childcare is not available.
  • Leave no trace: we depend on your help with leaving the church in better shape than it was when we arrived for the co-op day. (Plan to treat our facility like it’s your own: pick up trash, straighten chairs and tables, clean up surfaces, etc.).
  • Parents agree to pick up students no later than 10 minutes after the last class.
  • Parents agree to hold students accountable to finish assigned classwork.
  • Students and parents are responsible for any missing or damaged items. Immediately report any damage to co-op leadership. Vandals will be immediately dismissed from our co-op without refund.
  • Co-op participation authorizes Cornerstone to use the photographs and videos taken of students and members in any end-of-year video, yearbook, advertisements, web site, social media, or other media.
Health and Safety Statement
Practicing good hygiene at co-op is vital.
  • Wash hands / use hand sanitizer regularly; avoid touching nose/mouth/eyes, cover coughs and sneezes with tissue / elbow; avoid public high-touch surfaces.
  • Stay at home if you are ill or until you are symptom-free for 24 hours.
    This includes fever, diarrhea / vomiting, conjunctivitis (pink eye), strep throat, head lice, ringworm, impetigo / staph / MRSA, and communicable diseases including but not limited to chickenpox, common colds, influenza, measles, meningitis, mononucleosis, mumps, and pertussis.
  • Our co-op cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not be infected with anything. Co-op attendance could increase the risk of contracting infections.
  • Our co-op sanitization practices include high touch surface disinfection, frequent handwashing, awareness of common signs of illness in children, on-site first aid supplies, and up-to-date emergency plans.
  • Church security cameras are on and recording at all times.
  • SC law encourages all persons to report any signs of suspected child abuse or neglect.
Student Conduct Statement
All students are responsible for their actions and should conduct themselves in keeping with their level of maturity, showing regard for authority and for the rights and welfare of others. Students are expected to seek excellence, be honest, use clean speech, and act with courteousness and kindness to all.
  • Strive for excellence in classes & activities, as unto the Lord.
  • Respect for and obedience to authority is expected.
  • While not expected, in the case of disciplinary problems the following should be considered standard procedure:
    1. First offense: the instructor will give a verbal warning to the student.
    2. Second offense: the student will be issued a written warning and the parents will be notified.

    3. Third offense: the student will be expelled from the co-op for the remainder of the year without a refund of fees. Disrespect towards other students or staff will not be tolerated and will fall under this “three strikes” clause. We reserve the right to reject, suspend, or terminate students or families at any time.
  • As we strive to do all to the glory of God at co-op, we seek for all clothing to be modest, neat, and clean. Appropriate dress includes no tank tops, spaghetti straps, halter tops, midriff baring tops, clothing or jewelry with distasteful pictures or sayings - which includes tobacco, alcohol, or controlled substance messages. Pants, shorts, dresses, and skirts should reflect modesty and be no higher than mid-thigh. Pants, shorts, and skirts should sit at the waist, not below. Attire is not indicative of a person’s spiritual worthiness, but God’s Word does give us standards of both dress and conduct (1 Tim. 2:9, 4:8, 12, 15-16, 1 Peter 2:12, 3:3-4).
  • Students in possession of any type of firearm, knife, tobacco, alcohol, or drugs will be asked to leave the premises immediately and the proper authorities will be notified. Any possession will result in the immediate and permanent suspension from further participation in the co-op without fee refund.
  • All cell phones must be silenced and placed in the student’s backpack during classes, unless used with teacher permission.

Co-op Community Statement
We are committed to building a Christ-honoring community and as such keep in mind the following when offense occurs:
  • Therefore I, the prisoner of the Lord, implore you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love, being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. - Ephesians 4:1-3
  • Therefore, if there is any encouragement in Christ, if any consolation of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion, make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose. - Philippians 2:1-2
  • So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience; bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so must you do also. - Colossians 3:12-14
  • As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. - Proverbs 27:17
We look forward to getting connected with you at Cornerstone
Christian Co-op as we engage, equip, and encourage one another!
